Congress Reaches Deal to Avoid Another Shutdown; Still Needs President’s Signature

Negotiators say they have reached a deal to fund the government and avoid another partial shutdown.

A group of lawmakers announced the news after a closed session on Capitol Hill Monday night.

Talks did not go far over the weekend because of Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities.

However, they still need the president’s signature before the deadline Friday night.

If it’s not approve, hundreds of thousands of federal workers could miss pay checks for a second time this year.
